About
Prehistoric specializes in the worlds finest fossils, minerals, and meteorites.. Come face to face with our animatronic baby trex as it comes to life. Break your own geode machine and a large kids educational toy area. Price ranges from 1 dollar to millions of dollars. We have spared no expense to offer an experience that is so totally different from your normal rock shop. All of our pocket stones are hand polished to give a higher polish and more natural shape. Our fossils are all originals from all over the world. Many clients stumble with what to call this wonderful place... Store, Gallery, Museum.. Well it is all of those things and more. Prehistoric also takes great pride in offering free classes and donations to schools all over the country. We have in our first 4 months of business reached over 500 students and children. We are very proud to be a part of this community..

This is my favorite place to stop to shop in Lincoln City. Very interesting place to browse as an adult, with everything from fossils to crystals to jewelry made of meteoric glass or a three-headed rattlesnake taxidermy, there is always something interesting and unusual to find here. Kids can pan for gold or break geodes as well, and there are educational toys and gifts for curious kids, so there is something for people of all ages here. Great place to stop and look for gifts for the person in your life who is interested in science/paleontology/geology.

This a really cool and fun place to spend an hour or two and pick up a few interesting gifts. I would have given them five stars except for one thing: apparently in this store, Covid does not exist. In defiance of Oregon mandate, the staff does not wear masks nor do they require masks in the store; there is no attempt made at social distancing and neither is there any hand sanitizer available, even though sorting through some of the offerings for sale require a lot of touching. Thankfully most (but not all) of the patrons when we were there were wearing masks, but it was very weird. We were quite uncomfortable and tried our best to stay socially distanced but this was impossible with the staff.

Great place if you like rocks, gems and fossils. You can break a Geode, pan for gold, and pick up your favorite gem. And if you’re a dinosaur fan, this is the place for you. TW: there are taxidermy animals inside.

I take my grand daughters here every time we visit. There is much to discover and learn with each and every opportunity. Prices are in the higher side but it’s still within a reasonable budget to leave with something new and splendid

Most interesting store on the coast. So much to see. Plan to spend atleast 30min. The fossils will blow your mind. You can even plan for fossils.

This is a great attraction, part museum and part rock shop. Their displays are very interesting and all of their inventory is well curated. I took my grandchildren on a weekend visit and they were fascinated the entire time. SO much to look at and so much to consider buying - realistically for any budget.

Take your little rockhounds to Prehistoric! From the animatronic T-Rex to the large selection of polished rocks and shells, this place is fun for all ages. Part store, part museum, there's something for everyone. Don't pass this one by when you visit Lincoln City!

Very fun stop! It has a lot of cool things to look at and touch and it has things to sell and it has things NOT to touch. It is a tiny museum on the main drag in town and well worth the parking and stopping.
